Recompile. Is 'make mrproper' a must? Make just stops!
I have searched the forums and could not find much talking about recompile issues. I have been spending much time in the kernel configuration options trying to get the perfect setup but every new compile I do, I copy the .config file, do a 'make mrproper' and copy the .config file back to /usr/src/linux. After I clean the directory, I 'make modules && make modules_install', after that I issue 'make' to compile the kernel. So my question is: do I have to ' make mrproper', 'make modules && make modules_install' EVERY time I recompile? Or is it unnecessary? I have had problems like the compile would just stop without making the bzImage if I did not run 'make modules && make modules_install' before the compile. Is there some way around this?
